Peyton is a very lucky cat. He was found by a family during the floods that ravaged Lake and Porter Counties in the summer of 2008. They cleaned him up and learned what a friendly, loving cat he is. Then their landlord learned he was there and they had to make a choice, him or their apartment. They contacted us in tears at having to give him up. They had become so attached in the short time they had him. They were saving to get him vetted and trying to get another place so they could keep him, but the time to do it just wasn't there. After having him in my home, I can see why. He is one of the most social and outgoing cats I have met. He didn't care that he had no clue where he was and that there were strange people and animals in the new place. After getting a clean bill of health, he was allowed to intermingle with his new friends. He got along great with the other cats. The dogs, eh not so much but he has made great progress. He stood up for himself from the get go and didn't let anyone push him around. Once he had free run of the house, we noticed that he walked a little funny. We also noticed that he sat on his right knee opposed to sitting on the foot. We had him checked out to learn that his hip had been broken. The head of his femur and the hip socket portion of his pelvis were both shattered on his right side. It appears he had been hit, possibly by a car, when he was trying to survive the flooding. It was an old injury and is not causing him too much trouble. The muscles themselves are holding the joint in place. He can still get around and do all the things that any other cat can do. He just only uses his left left back leg when jumping up or down. It is an older injury and does not cause him any pain unless greatly manipulated. He truly deserves a loving home after fighting for his own life so young. He is neutered, up to date on his vaccinations, and is negative on feline diseases.
